The 1 had flatter detent covers. After that the changes are more subtle and generally involve the poppit. Just make sure it has an optimus 1.2 board or better. The 1.1 was bad and replaced free, beyond that its all easy to fix.

Yeah, there really is no V1 or V2, etc. The improvements were released over time you you could have any combination of parts. Doing a quick net search will reveal the info you're after as far as specifics and pictures of what to look for.

They're incredibly fun guns that unfairly earned a bad rao IMO.

I just bought a used one and had the same questions. I found a great thread over on PBN: How To: Identify What Empire Mini Generation Parts You Have - PbNation

That's true but it's not an indicator of the gun honestly. Mine came with the nice case but the gun never had any of the problems everyone seemed to bring up.
